    Most likely, the accessories (Banner/stand and possibly vader helmet for kylo, table/leia for Ben) will be exclusive and the base figures will be in the Rogue One release.

    Man, I miss well-articulated 3 3/4" stuff...

    Its interesting that they're so big on the codenames. I wasn't around for the initial TFA launch, was it the same for that?

    Yes they were. Kylo's command shuttle was called "lead villain vehicle."
    Rey's speeder was called "lead hero craft"
    Poe's x-wing was called "hero star fighter"
    The falcon was called "hero vehicle"

    And so forth

    Less cryptic for TFA, and easily guessed. Rogue One has been a tougher jogan fruit to crack.

    Rebelscum by the way of nerdist has some figures that Hasbro is going to show off at SDCC.

    Gives us an idea of what to expect for Rogue One.

    And apparently the most difficult character to sculpt in the history of toys.

    TBH, I just think Hasbro (and Mattel, unless it’s for a collector's line) seem to struggle with humans. Notice how their SW figures of non-humans pretty much look good for the most part. Their humans, though, are just ugly to the extreme.

    That's true. I remember when rots came out and they were talking about how Hasbro was going to have access to the full body scans that lfl did I thought it was going to be a revolution but alas it wasn't to be.

    Something just seems especially off about Rey. I think it has more to do with paint than the actual sculpt. If you go back a few pages you'll find pictures of a customizer that just repaint the heads from TBS and it is stunning how good they look.

    Yeah, most of the human faces look terrible. But it could be mostly because of the paint. Even some of the masked/helmeted figures look bad because of sloppy paint application.

    You guys have it all wrong. This is the exclusive Hasbro "Bee-sting Rey," which features Rey after having been stung in the face by seven wasps. In that context, her face looks perfect.

    Yeah, if you remove the paint, the sculpt is dead-on.

    Or it could be "Severe Peanut Allergy Rey".

    Maz: Who are you?
    Rey: No one. But FYI, I'm allergic to peanuts. So no peanuty bar snacks please. Thanks.

    “Blackbird” = black imperial shuttle
    “Owl” probably x-wing
    “Unicorn” = u-wing
    “Vulture” probably tie fighter
    “Raven” = tie striker

    Now that I think about it, I'm guessing the two unknowns are empire vehicles of some sort.

    Birds for empire, mammals or mythical beasts for rebels.

    I'll be sitting Rogue One out when it comes to merchandise unfortunately :( I love the cards design though. I'll be saving up for Episode 8.
